Novena To Saint Columba / Columcille

Repeat the following Novena prayers every day for 9 consecutive days.

O Glorious Saint Columba,
in remembrance of the love you bore your native land in the golden days,
when you declared your spirit would always be with us,
we beg of you to intercede for us
that we may worthily imitate your virtues,
especially your great devotion to the Blessed Sacrament.
Turn to Jesus on the altar,
and never cease to pray for us until the fire of Divine Love
burns brightly and steadfastly in every Irish heart.
Obtain for our rulers and for all,
the true spirit of charity.
Let not your interest in the schools of Ireland
be less than it was formerly.
Bless the labours of those who work in them
that the land you loved so well on earth
may become again the "Isle of Saints and Scholars".
We invoke your powerful intercession
against the dread evils of intemperance
and for the preservation of the faith
and virtue of the Irish people.
Pray for us now and always,
that faithfully fulfilling the duties of our state,
we may love Jesus and Mary with our whole hearts,
and thus prove worthy of your love and protection.
